than that. technology is advanced. they're going the start as close as possible to the event, to the explosions and move out from there. so, my nat data first and then slowly but surely, they'll get through the rest of those photos and video. over time, but it will be weeks. they will have a better sense of what might be connected to other factors, like the bags that they think carried the bombs. so i think it's great, get this now, because it's difficult to be preserved. >> is this, is that an approach that has evolved over the past 12 years? is that not the way they would have approached this before 9/11? before we had this huge investment in intelligence since then? >> first, we simply didn't have access to all this video and photo technology that is ubiquitous today. there are far more video cameras, hotels and restaurants and people are walking around with iphones. the second is a much greater ability to deal with these massive amounts of data and the technology there has improved and the u.s. government and the intelligence community has been on the forefront. >> is the
of ongoing debate we've had for years with facial recognition technology and how much of that we aught to be having in this country which raises all sorts of civil liberty questions and big brother questions. i think this episode that we've witnessed just this afternoon could become a very big factor in that debate about facial recognition technology in this country. >> i think you're absolutely right. i think as we see things up fold, it'll spark a number of larger debates but i was wondering, michael, do have you a sense of a time line when this information came to law enforcement, when they figured thought was a significant lead, where we are in that time line now? >> it was a eureka moment when they found the video of from we lef that lord & taylor store a couple lhundred yards from here showing the individual dropping off the bag. that was not something they had yesterday. from all our sourcing, through last night, through this morning. there were no breakthroughs. so my guess is they got that at some point early today. and it filtered up and they matched it up with the video from
in this age of technology that they're able to get so much incoming information from so many different sources. on the other hand, as you say, you then have to make sure that you are whittling that down to the right sources of information. >> that's right. in this case on the video front and the photographic front, they've got a huge advantage. they know where the explosions were. you can actually work out from there. krou don't know where the videos and photos came from the public. but in terms of buildings, once you have a picture of anyone suspicious, you move out and you, you know, rapidly moving circles. how long would it take if someone was walking? let's look at that video camera. you try to piece this together. that's what what was done by the british officials after the bombing on 7/7 in 2005 and they were fundamentally able to track them all the way back to their homes. >> kevin, we just learned today the name of the third tragic fatality in this bombing. ling si lu, a graduate student from china studying statistics at boston university. i don't need to tell you the emotions around t
that can go on as well with the way that this is developing. >> what kind of technology do they have that -- that could help them with this? i mean, when you talk to any investigator, any district attorney, they talk about the effect of television programs where the technology is so much more sophisticated than in real life but what about things like facial recognition? >> well, i think that's key. agencies like immigration and customs enforcement and customs and border protection are huge in a case like this because they might be able to tell you about something, if there was reason for some person to be a foreign visitor or foreign traveler, but facial recognition software, you know, when it's in certain places, airports or some place, can be upheld, but you don't know how somebody might have come or could be a local person so it's only limited. the more value is the digital age. if that praf is photograph is pn everybody's iphone, on the national media and everybody starts calling in. everybody starts calling in. i think it's my uncle freddy. i think it's joe down the street, and

's hard to say. it's a technology that is of interest to terrorists who want to make their own bombs of any stripe. >> but does it look, when we think about a formal terrorist group, and the sophistication that it would use, does this lend itself to that style of sophistication? i mean, when we talk about pressure cooker bombs, it seems kind of crude. >> yes. so my guess is that this probably is a do-it-yourselfer kind of individual or individuals, perhaps a small group. either one that was inspired by al qaeda or perhaps neonazis or anti-government patriot groups who have been known to act on patriots day. so the date of the attack suggests that we not overlook the possibility that this could be an american anti-government group. although the type of bomb has most recently been attempted by american jihadists, allegedly promoting al qaeda's vision. >> it still leaves a lot of people wondering where the lead is going to come from that's going to start the investigators on the right trail to find whoever did this. our thanks to dr. jessica stern. thanks for being here. i appreciate it
about and propaganda that targets accomplish speakers. i would warn that this technology as you implied is something that is very well-known in domestic circles as well on a variety of websites. although we commonly see it in the al qaeda world, we don't think it's distinctive enough to draw conclusions at this point. >> do you get the impression that the person who made this bomb is trying to cover their tracks? meaning this is not somebody looking for attention, but covering their tracks because they want to do it again or covering their tracks for another reason that they are trying to stay in hiding? >> i think so. i think the lack of a plan of responsibility from outside the u.s. and international terrorist groups or at least of lack of a credible claim starts to make one suspect more and more as hours and days pass that this was an individual or a group operating solely here in the united states. that doesn't tell you if it's anti-government and a domestic group and inspired by al qaeda, but as time goes on, a lack of a plan of responsibility from overseas, you do have to look mor
